Penn State has hit its stride late in the season with six wins in seven games and the only loss was by two points to Purdue in the Big 10 Championship game. The Nittany Lions have covered the spread five-straight games following their impressive 76-59 victory over Texas A&M on Thursday. Andrew Funk hit 8 of 10 from downtown and totaled 27 points for Penn State, which held the Aggies to 33.9 percent shooting. Texas cruised by Colgate 81-61 for its fifth consecutive win, but if Penn State continues to be hot from beyond the arc the Longhorns will have trouble pulling away. The Nittany Lions shoot 39 percent from long distance while playing good defense allowing opponents a .428 field goal percentage for the season and a miserly .349 their past nine games. Penn State is 21-8-1 ATS its past 30 games against .600 teams and Texas is 2-11 ATS its past 13 NCAA Tournament games. Play Penn State.
